The history of the Fougeyrolles family goes back to the Medieval landscape of northwestern France, to a region known as Brittany. It is derived from the family living in Brittany. The name Fougeyrolles is also derived from the Old French word "fougere," meaning "fern," and indicates that the original bearer lived in an area heavily grown with ferns.

Fougeyrolles Early Origins



The surname Fougeyrolles was first found in Britanny (Bretagne). One of the first records of the family was Jeanne de Fougères (died after 1273.) Also known as Lady of Fougères, she was the wife of Hugh XII of Lusignan, Count of La Marche and Count of Angoulême. She was born in Brittany, the only daughter and surviving child of Raoul III, seigneur of Fougères and Isabelle de Craon (born 1212.)

Fougeyrolles Spelling Variations



Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Fougeyrolles, including Fugere, Fugère, Fougere, Fougière, Fougères, Fougeray, Fougerolle, Fougerolles, Fougeyrolles, Fougerat, Fougeret, Fougeron, Fougeroux, Feugère, Feugière, Faugère, Faugière, Fauguiere, Feuchière, Fouchère, Feuquières, Feuquerolles, Fouquière, Fougery and many more.

The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebec. Migration was slow. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The family name Fougeyrolles has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Fougeyrolles were 60 individuals who arrived from French to Canadian shores between 1600 and 1900. Among them was a lord of Fougerat, who lived in Ontario in 1605; Charles Fougère married in 1689 in Ste-Famille-Ile-d'Orléans, Quebec.
